Location, location, location!!! Soooo convenient to everything you want and need to do during your Disney/Orlando vacation. You will feel like you are in a tropical oasis at this top rated Encantada gated resort. And best of all this 5 star rated townhouse is one of the best positioned in the resort being just steps from the clubhouse, pools, & playground, but far enough not to hear the noise. It is on the lake with the front facing a wooded conservatory making for more pleasant & peaceful experience. This townhome is beautifully decorated and very well appointed--but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Guest have full use of the clubhouse and facilities which include:
Two heated swimming pools (one being a zero-entry pool designed for younger children)
Two hot spa pools
Arcade games & pool table
Catch & release fishing (without permit!)
Shuttle service to major theme parks (for a fee)
Lots of area info, maps, guides, etc. available in clubhouse

We are a Louisiana couple and enjoy coming to sunny Florida. We lived 3 years in Merritt Island, FL when my husband was in the airforce in the mid 70's and worked at what was then Cape Kennedy. My how things have changed! But we always loved Florida, and it feels like a second home. We could never leave our Louisiana roots. So, that is why we are so excited to have this townhouse in Florida. We hope to visit often with family and friends and hope all the guest that stay enjoy it as much as we do.
The Owner purchased this townhome in 2011

We love being close to the western entrance to Disney. It's so easy and much less traveled. (I wonder if they are keeping it a secret). Shopping and new restaurants are right there close.
Encantada's location has that secluded but safe feeling that you need after a day of overload.
I love sitting on the screened in patio in the mornings with my coffee looking over the lake and fountain as the sun comes up. Also, taking a walk around the lake on the paved sidewalk is nice. We saw an eagle last time we were there. My husband enjoys feeding cheerios to the fish of the fishing pier.
We found the stay in walkin' on sunshine GREAT. The prior contact with Janet upon reservation was very pleasant and she was very helpful in answering questions about the rental. Upon arrival, the check in was very smooth and took only 5 minutes. We were very excited to see the house when we arrived and we were very happy to see that everything exceeded our expectations. The interior is very beautiful and nicely decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped and bathrooms spotless. The kids loved the bunk bed in "their room". We very much enjoyed both the small pool at the house as well as the larger pools in the club house, which is located conveniently close by the house. We felt very welcome here and would definetly like to return another time.
We are a family with 2 young boys of 5 and 6 years of age. Our youngest son even celebrated his 5th year birthday in the house, so this stay has definitely created long lasting memories for us all. We give or utmost recommendation for staying in the house of Janet ...
